Are there any performance differences between different distributions? Or is it safe to assume, that distributions based on the same kernel version will perform alike?
With Gentoo everything is compiled from the source code, to match your machine. You can even compile the kernel, switching on what you require and switching off that which don't need. It's the same with the GMP library -- GMP will run better if compiled specifically for your processor/system.

LLR's source is available on Jean Penne's webpage, but I am not sure this source is for Linux. Is srsieve's source available?
